Hey, Comcast, what about 4k video? What about those times when you download 300+ goddamn Gb to restore your game library from Steam? What about the weekly online backup of my home storage that has several terabytes now that HDDs got so cheap? What about the fact that usage caps won't solve any problems or reduce costs in your end (you still need to have network capacity to serve all customers at full speed if they decide to use their caps at the same time)?
Not the swatter but calls in general. And it should not be the only filter. It's just that a flood of 911 calls about the same thing will probably be a trigger to some fast deployment of the police or at least a faster investigation and possibly deployment of police force.
You see, it varies from case to case. An active shooter in a campus will generate more calls. In any case, before mobilizing a large force you can do some quick investigation. In domestic cases it's a bit more complicated but you can still do some investigation to determine the severity of the situation if any before deploying the forces.
But at the heart of it all is some sort of field survey and investigation before deploying deadly force. It would prevent absurdities like throwing grenades at babies and shooting a guy because he tried to defend his family from perceived intruders.
The swatting part is pretty worrying. But in the end it highlights the failure of the authorities in actually investigating before lashing out with very few exceptions. Even the supposed active shooter, if they didn't receive any other call then it's almost safe to assume it's a hoax.
I often use PIA too and while they do have some issues (Five Eyes etc) it seems to be the best vpn provider for the price. Let us see if this is isolated or if other companies will leave Russia to protect themselves and their customers.
Aw, come on, and lose the opportunity of seeing the chaos whit athletes getting flesh-eating infections and infra-structure failures? Of course you won't be seeing that in the mainstream media.
I'm currently very ashamed of my country. These games must be by far the most corrupt ever. Remember FIFA got pwned after the games in Brazil. I'm hoping the same happens after the "event I don't give a shit about".
